Soft set honey or more commonly known as ‘creamed honey’ is produced by the bees during the spring and summer months. We are often asked ‘what is soft set honey’. Put simply it differs from usual honey in that it is stirred for 24-48 hours before jarring. In doing so a lovely soft buttery texture is created as the honey crystals are broken down becoming smooth and buttery. Hence also going by the name ‘creamed honey’.

How to use Soft Set Honey

Perfect for stirring onto warm porridge, try spreading onto warm toast with peanut butter, or clotted cream.

Try with ice cream for a lovely evening honey ice cream treat.

Soft set honey is one of the most versatile honey, from eating straight of the spoon to disolving in smoothies.

Store at room temperature in a dry place.

This is some of the most pure and velvety soft set honey you will encounter. Although if you prefer a runny honey, or are looking for honey for hayfever then please see our further products or read further about our honey and beekeeping work.

How to Use Added Pollen Honey

Added pollen honey is best taken in small quantities over the winter months when pollen in the air is at it’s lowest, with the hope that the next season when there is a large amount of pollen in the air again, you will be more used to the pollen having taken it throughout the winter months.

With the added pollen honey in the jar you will notice more ‘bits’ these are the pollen granules and will be a multitude of colours, from dark to light, being representative of the wide variety of plants, and tree flowers that the bees have gathered the pollen from.

As we can only harvest so much pollen, and always leave the bees with plenty of their own honey and pollen stores, we can only produce a limited amount of this honey per year.

Beekeeping Practices:

Beekeeping at Northumberland Honey Co is focused on sustainability. We use organic treatment methods for the control of bee pests and work tirelessly on bee breeding to select from the best of our colonies to improve the future breeding and genetics of our honeybees.

In the past few years this has significantly reduced overwintering losses and seriously improved the survivability of our honey bees. With a constant expansion of our bee numbers rather than losses.

We are also members of the Bee Farmers Association, and are SALSA approved. We take on apprentice beekeepers to train for a career in beekeeping, ensuring skills are passed onto the next generation. All helping to safeguard the future of the honey bee.


Our bees are kept in the heart of Hadrian's wall, each jar is individually numbered, with traceability back to the very beehives that produced the honey and the location.

We produce honey in the Tyne Valley / Hadrian's wall area of Northumberland, and Cumbria. With both Northumberland and Cumbrian varieties of honey. As a small team of beekeepers our focus is on top quality bee husbandry, survivability of the honey bees we keep and producing quality honey. Taking this honey on a precious journey from the bees to you with the upmost care.
